Hello
looked in inubator this afternoon and there was a baby covered in vemicullite,a total surprise never saw the egg cracking at all,it had cracked from the underneath section and there was a patch on the egg and when candling never saw a thing so was expecting it be no good.
she weighs 11 gramms, will take more pictures when she's in tabletop home with the others,the egg yolk sac has gone but there is a slight opening should i leave her in incubator for the night,i have put her in a margarine tub with damp kitchen roll.
